The gun-control advocacy organization currently on the lead, March for Our Lives, releases an ambitious new gun control agenda that aims to dramatically curtail the Second Amendment rights currently used by millions of Americans. Founded by Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg, a famous teen activist who leads this new plan sure to upset law abiding gun owners in America.
Hogg tweeted out that "Policymakers have failed, so survivors are stepping up". The "Peace Plan for a Safer America", the name of the plan that is on their website, intends to create a "national gun buy-back and disposal program" along with instituting a ban on "assault weapons."
We know this seems ambitious given Washington’s apathy to decades of bloodshed in our schools, neighborhoods, and even our houses of worship.— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) August 21, 2019
It’s okay to disagree with us – but we know video games aren't to blame.
So I ask you @GOP @DNC what are your plans to end this?
However, such a plan does not address two things that cause the failure of gun control efforts; imprecision and impracticality.
To ban "assault weapons, high-capacity magazines, and other weapons of war", the Peace Plan says that the Congress must pass this legislation. The proposal claims to be simple. Weapons often used during mass shootings should not be allowed in public, including the community.
Basically, this plan is meant to emanate Australia's national buy-back policy. One that is mandatory. The major issue is how it affects citizens who are already responsible, follow the law, and commit no crimes. Th
Western Journal stated:
According to the global Small Arms Survey, there are 393 million civilian-owned firearms in America, The Washington Post reported last year.
That’s 120.5 guns for every 100 Americans — twice the rate of the next highest nation, Yemen (with 52.8 guns per 100 residents).
In other words, reducing the number of guns in America by 30 percent, as the Peace Plan aims to do, would mean eradicating over 100 million firearms.
